On October 4th 2012, Mark Zuckerburg (Facebook CEO), announced they reached the 1 billion mark. That is, one billion monthly active users. This means they have 1 billion people checking the Facebook site at least once a month. Mr Zuckerburg even made a personal post on his wall.
The total world population was estimated to be over 7 billion earlier this year. Over one seventh of the world population actively uses Facebook…
They also claim to have over 600 million mobile users which was included in a fact sheet they made available with this announcement.
Considering the amount of people living in poverty, the overall age distribution of the world population, and what defines an active user, can Facebook continue to grow?
